I wasn't sure if he'd be camera shy to repeat some of what he told me (or more) on camera, but it turned out he very much wasn't shy — he had actually worked on Broadway before working at Tesla!

Getting a coveted job at Tesla isn't easy. Elon Musk once said, "if you're at Tesla, you're choosing to be at the equivalent of Special Forces. There's the regular Army, and that's fine, but if you are working at Tesla, you're choosing to step up your game." You'd think statements like this would keep job applicants away. Not so much
